he Beckwith-Wiedemann Children’s Association of New Zealand has three primary components:

· The Association

· This Web Site

· The BWCA NZ family support forum

The BWCA NZ is a non-profit organisation, established in 2006 by Carolyn and Jon Walker.  The association was formed to fulfill a perceived need in terms of support for New Zealand families of BWS children.

The association’s activities are manifold, but our primary directives are:

· To increase public and professional awareness of Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome in New Zealand.

· To provide a support network for children and families in New Zealand that are affected by BWS.

· To obtain and provide the latest information about BWS to families and Medical Professionals.

· To establish and maintain links with other BWS related organizations around the world.

Through these activities, we hope to assure New Zealand BWS families that they are not alone, and that there are people available who know and care about their situation. 

We wish to ensure that New Zealand Medical Professionals have access to the latest information about BWS. 

We also hope to provide access to the largest possible collection of BWS support, resources and information from around the world, for all New Zealanders affected by Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome.
